This guitar is by far better than any that i have purchased. It has the amazing emg tone, full floyd rose, neck-thru and looks amazing. And all for only 800!!?? Most guitars with these features would easily cost over 1,000. I play in a band using a randall rx120 and a marshall cab and i could ask for a better sound. I play any type of rock from led zeppelin to avenged sevenfold and this guitar will give me the right sound for just about all of it. I would highly recommend this guitar.
